About Us
Laboratory Complex

The laboratory complex is one of the key elements of the park, consisting of 11 laboratories and managed by an independent consortium, established specifically for that purpose. Among the members of the consortium we can see some of the leading academic institutions such as Sofia University, Technical University of Sofia, Medical University of Sofia and the Bulgarian Academy of Science. For more information about the Consortium, please click here.

Laboratories within the complex carry out independent and collaborative research and development activities.
